Claire & Barry wedding

In weddings on August 8, 2011 at 7:00 pm

Hi everyone once again we were privileged to be asked to do the wedding photography for a lovely couple from Strabane & Sion Mills, Claire O’Reilly and Barry McGuigan. The wedding took place at St Mary’s Chapel, Strabane and the wedding mass was performed by Fr Michael Doherty PP.

For those of you who don’t know Claire she is about as much fun as you can pack into someone, a real joy to be around and loves the camera as much as it loves her. Barry likewise is a fun loving guy who enjoys the ‘craic’, and like many a man who truly loves his woman basks in her happiness, here are a few images of what was a great day for the couple, their families and the large group of friends who attended the service and reception.

I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of Colette and i to wish Claire and Barry, Life, Love and Happiness all their days.

most of the images here are by my better half Colette who keeps me honest….

David Oliver ‘Ghosts on the Ocean’ 2011 Photo-Shoot

In Music on July 19, 2011 at 3:48 pm

Hi, one of my passions is music, from Rock, Blues, classical you name it i love it, so when a good friend of mine David Oliver asked if i would like to shoot the cover for his new album i jumped at the chance. Davie gave me a untitled demo of the album, a breakaway from his blues based music that his lovely wife Cat and the RedJam outfit usually do ( brilliantly). This was something altogether different, traditional irish, scots origin mountain music from the southern states, lively foot tapping stuff and ballads that sing to the soul a fusion of music that had our household all listening to it from pop tastic 14 year boy a 17 year old MM addict the missus who skipped around the house to the great tunes and myself who nearly burnt out the cambridge sounds works deck. Folks if you haven’t heard this get it http://www.redjam.us/discography.html will take you to the site.

Anyway after a good 2 weeks listening to the sounds and a few phone calls only one place would do for the shoot, Co Donegal. Normally a shoot like this would take photographer, assistant, make up hair etc, we decided this would be a raw look so a few cameras and lenses in the bag, a few flash heads just in case and off we went one sunday morning.

Now what made this work so well was the craic, David is a fun guy to be with and the laughs came thick and fast, here a few images from the day some we used and some we didn’t. David’s brother James done a great job on the album design super job. http://www.designboy.tv/

here are a few images from the day..
